I recently reviewed Steve McQueen’s excellent Shame for the folks over at Flick Feast:
Steve McQueen’s second directorial outing after the immensely powerful Hunger (2008) is a raw and unflinching portrayal of addiction and loneliness. Michael Fassbender gives an outstanding performance as the cold and distant Brandon, a man whose existence is built around a well ordered routine and the need for sexual contact. He looks withdrawn, tired and pale throughout the film, a man haunted by his burning need for sordid thrills despite his apparent inability to gain pleasure from them.
